Top 5 Moments from Monster Jam World Finals XX
Authored by Monster Jam on March 14, 2022
Monster Jam World Finals is back in action after a hiatus! Over 20 Monster Jam trucks and drivers will compete in Orlando, FL, May 21-22, all aiming to add their names to the distinguished list of past World Champions.
May’s event will mark the 21st running of Monster Jam World Finals, but it’s been three years since Monster Jam World Finals XX took place in 2019. So, if you need a refresher, look no further! Here are the top five moments from Monster Jam World Finals XX:
5) LeDuc Leap
One of the moves of the night at Monster Jam World Finals XX was Todd LeDuc’s patented “LeDuc Leap.” LeDuc opened his Freestyle run by racing down the elevated starting ramp and going full send into the first jump. His Monster Energy truck flew across the Camping World Stadium and had all the fans on their feet!
4) Racing and Red Lights
Bari Musawwir in Zombie advanced to the Racing final after Camden Murphy jumped the red light in Bakugan Dragonoid in the semifinal. However, the fortunes were reversed in the final as Musawwir red-lighted, allowing Jimmy Creten in Bounty Hunter to win his second World Championship!
3) New World Championships
Two new contests were designed for the Monster Jam trucks: 2-Wheel Skills and High Jump. These two competitions will return at Monster Jam World Finals XXI with Tom Meents entering as the defending 2-Wheel Skills World Champion and Cynthia Gauthier as the defending High Jump World Champion.
2) Record-Breaking Encore!
Colton Eichelberger was the last driver to take to the track Saturday night to wrap up the action at Monster Jam World Finals XX. Following Freestyle, Eichelberger got behind the wheel of the Monster Jam stunt truck and performed a record-breaking (at the time) seven-truck jump in front of the fans at Camping World Stadium.
1) Linsey Read Makes History
Linsey Read qualified her way into the Monster Jam World Finals Racing competition by winning the Showdown on Friday night. While a mechanical failure put an end to her bid for the Racing World Championship, she made history on Saturday by winning Freestyle and being crowned World Champion! Read is the only Showdown winner to win Freestyle in the same year.
What will the top 5 moments be this year? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see when Monster Jam World Finals returns to Camping World Stadium this May. See it LIVE, get your tickets today!
